Pyrgos is real gem that is not to be missed. As the island's former capital, it was built in the heart of the pre-volcanic hinterland. Pyrgos offers panoramic views whilst it is not swamped by tourists because it is a bit further from the famous caldera. However, it is still picture perfect and offers a very different perspective of Santorini that we would highly recommend. Like Imerovigli, it is also a paradise for portraiture!
